Preparing for your trip to Edinburgh, ScotlandHere at Silver Lining Apartments, we not only receive regular travellers and holidaymakers but we are all advent travellers ourselves and we know what it’s like taking off on an adventure to a new city or country. It’s often one of the most exciting yet exhausting and stressful things you can embark on. So we have taken the time to compile some simple, hopefully, effective tips from our experience and the experience of some of our guests over the years to help you prepare for your journey. Where to start… If you are planning or have booked a trip to Edinburgh then there are some things you should know about Edinburgh.
Stairs & Cobbled Roads
- Edinburgh has a lot of STAIRS! Yes…. stairs….our buildings are old and most of our buildings don’t have permission or even the space to install lifts. Especially when you are in the Old Town of Edinburgh.
- We have a lot of hills and cobblestone roads, you will always seem to be going up a cobblestone hill (and when I say hill – I mean a steep road) and coming down a cobblestone hill.
- Scotland is always a bit cooler than most places south of the border and it may be a bit wet. However, without the rain, Scotland can’t possibly be one of the most beautiful green countries in the world. I promise you it is absolutely one of the most beautiful places you will ever visit. Especially Edinburgh, it has the most beautiful buildings
